WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 13, 2011) – TOMORROW, Lieutenant Governor Anthony G. Brown will deliver the 2011 Walt Whitman High School Commencement Address at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. The Lt. Governor will encourage students to continue pursuing educational opportunities that will help prepare them for success in the 21st Century economy.
Lt. Governor Brown leads the O’Malley-Brown Administration’s efforts to increase higher education opportunities. The administration has taken steps to make a higher education more accessible and affordable for all Marylanders, including making record investments in our community colleges and freezing tuition four years in a row at our four year public colleges and universities. Last year the Lt. Governor launched the Skills2Compete initiative, which promotes programs and activities that lead to increasing the skill level of Marylanders though the attainment of a post-secondary credential, apprenticeship program or degree.
